Food Review: Go Max Go’s Cleo’s Peanut Butter Cups and Snap! Candy Bars
Let me tell you, Go Max Go Foods is a life-saver for chocoholics like me who love rich, decadent candy but also want to eat ethically. Go Max Go makes vegan candy bars based on popular flavors but with all-natural, vegan and ethically conscious ingredients.
If you are a vegan, you are probably already familiar with Go Max Go’s flavors like Jokerz (similar to Snickers), Twilight (similar to Milky Way), Buccaneer (similar to 3 Musketeers) and Mahalo (similar to Almond Joy or Mounds), which are all to die for!! In fact, I included them in one of my posts about my favorite vegan Halloween candy - check it out!
A while ago, Go Max Go released their newest flavors – Cleo’s and Snap! Cleo’s is similar to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Snap! is similar to Crunch bars. I jumped with joy when I found them both at my local health food store, Mother's Market, and couldn't wait to try them both!
First I tried Cleo’s Peanut Butter Cups! In my pre-vegan days I loooooved Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, so I was stoked to finally have a go-to vegan version of one of my favorite flavors!
The candy cups did not disappoint and were the perfect mix of light rice-milk chocolate and creamy peanut butter. Mmmm mmmm good! One cup was rich enough to satisfy even my immense sweet tooth, so I was able to save the second cup to savor later (or to share with Mister Spooky, if I feel generous).
Snap! was everything the name promised it would be – light, crispy and crunchy! The puffed, crisped rice bits and rice-milk chocolate gave the bar a light, airy feeling while still filling me up. It was the perfect indulgent snack without weighing me down!
Go Max Go’s candy bars continue to impress me! Both new flavors were delicious and I would definitely buy them again. They are not your typical vegan candy bars and really do emulate the taste of their inspirations. In fact, I say that they even taste BETTER than the stale, plastic-y candy bars they are based on!
Not only do they taste better, but Go Max Go candy bars are vegan and contain only ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients.
You can find Go Max Go products at most Whole Foods Markets, your local natural/health food store or by ordering them online!
